If you’ve been thinking of giving up fast food, this might just give you that final push. An employee at Burger King posted a disturbing and really disgusting photo of him stepping on their lettuce–the very same lettuce that you may eat in your Whopper or any other BK sandwich.
Apparently the employee of a Cleveland, Ohio Burger King was dumb enough to post an anonymous photo of himself on 4chan that showed him stepping in bins of lettuce this week. He captioned the image with “This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King.”
Not surprisingly, some 4chan viewers were equally as grossed out as we are and it didn’t take long before they determined who the employee was. Remember, this is the Internet, Mr. Lettuce Stepper, so people can pretty much find out anything these days. Viewers grabbed the GPS data included in the picture and discovered the exact location, phone and address of the Burger King.
From there, it was all downhill for this guy. The local news was contacted and phone calls ensued–all within 15 minutes from the time this idiot posted the photo.
Apparently, both he and his shift manager have been fired, but it makes us wonder: How many people ate that lettuce before he was caught? And what else do employees at Burger King–and any other restaurant, for that matter–do to our food? We already know it’s super unhealthy, for the most part, but now we have to worry about people’s feet being on our food?
It’s just another good reason to skip fast food and cook at home.
